A warning for dog owners about a time honored treat dogs love.  The FDA says "Bone Treats" or cooked and processed Ham Bones, Pork Femur Bones, Rib Bones and Smokey Knuckle Bones and any bone dried through a smoking process or by baking could be deadly.  The agency says about 90 dogs have been sickened, with at least 15 deaths nationwide from dogs gnawing on the brittle bones which have been reported to cause digestive blockages, choking, diarrhea, vomiting, and cuts and other injuries in the mouth. Vets say raw bones, which have not been processed are ok under supervision.
